Could likely be bespoke; with italian industrialists you never know :P

Am I right in saying the peal 240 is shorter and wider than the ae 5 when comparing the exact same marked US size?

To confuse things more - or just to point out how it really depends on your own feet - I had the Peal boot in 240 last, and it pinched my big toe, while the AE 5 last feels very roomy. Also, in comparing the 240 Peal to the RL Lindrick, which is on the 325 last, if you put them sole to sole they are almost identical. Yet the 325 fits fine. I couldn't see an visual difference, but the 240 was much tighter in the toebox.

I also don't know how Peal and RL convert from UK to US sizes. Although both the Peal and the RL seemed about right in length and comparable to the AE. (I go TTS in the AE 5; some people size down and go up in width).

It's unfortunate, because the Peal cordovan boot is one of the best shoes I've purchased - just beautiful.

I don't know about RL, but my sample size of two Peal shoes compared against my C&Js tells me that they use the more traditional conversion of UK <-> US sizes (ie, 10.0 UK = 10.5 US).

And at least one of the shoes seems to use width letters that are not adjusted, with the US E being equivalent to C&J's UK E. (If I'm not mistaken, some people also seem to think this is true for at least some RL models.)

I have the CJ for BB Cordovan Boot on 240 last, it was tagged 9.5D IS, but is definitely wider than 9.5D. I tried 341 last in CJ store before, the 8.5E UK is definitely slimmer than the equivalent 240 9.5D US (both were cordovan)

Does anyone have a picture of the Peal 240 last next to AE 5 last or the CJ 341?

Do you know if this also applies to C&J that are sold by Barneys and sized in US?

It would make sense. The only pair of shoes I have sized in UK are Trickers, and 10.5 UK Trickers is almost identical in size to 11 US (Barneys) C&J. But I still read a lot about 1 full size conversion being used.

Do you know if the Macneils or Park Ave's are on the 5 last? If so, I can pic them next to my 240 last peal boots.

Park Ave is on 5 last (MacNeil is on 7 last)

Thanks for posting the pictures

 Wow, the colour (as well as shape) on those shoes is stunning indeed.

I'm thinking of Hallam, Wembly or Alex.

 

Also is Alex (on the 348 last) still inflated in price? I was told that due to the Bond effect the price sky rocketed. (please correct me if I am wrong). 

Come one guys, give us some credit. Crockett & Jones would never inflate the price of a shoe due to demand such as SKYFALL. 

 

Our prices have been increased due to an increase in labour and material costs that the factory have been absorbing for some time now. A Crockett & Jones shoes is still the most competitively priced English made Goodyear welted shoe on the market for its quality level.

Now the challenge is going to be restraining myself from splashing out on a second pair of C&Js before I can really afford to do so!  I suspect I'll have to admire some boots from afar... I own zero boots, so if there's any style of shoe I can justify adding to my collection any time soon it is boots.

This is great to here. Double Monk are a very new customer of ours and from what we have seen they have a wonderful shop.

 

I am sure they will be pleased to hear you are thinking of a returning for a 2nd pair.

+1 Can say your shoes are in safe hands at Double Monk! It's a great place and far and away the best shoe store on the Australian continent!

I seem to have offended you and I do apologise for that. It was mainly because I heard somewhere a pair of alex was being sold for over a grand (probably a private seller of some sort). I didn't have any intention of spite. Sorry.

Alex was sold out in CJ store in Manhattan the last time I checked (2~3 weeks ago?), though at original price.
